5 yr old Michael Bohay has been diagnosed with tumors in his tongue, the floor of his mouth, chin and throat. He has had 6 surgeries to date and as a result does not have much of his tongue left.

A specialist in Colorado, Dr. Yates has seen pictures of Michael and has spoken with his mother Cynthia and said he can help Michael. Since he is out of state, Michael’s medical insurance will not cover the cost.

We are working to gather funds for the alternative and less invasive procedure that will help save Michael’s tongue and ultimately his life.
